Hello, my name is Dorian Valenzuela thank you for visiting my website. In 1971 my father walked into Vasek Polak Porsche and drove away in a tangerine 914-6. For him, it was just another car but for me it would be the car that sparked a lifelong obsession with European automobiles.

After studying engineering, I started my professional career with JPL/NASA where I worked as a engineer and technician for 13 years primarily in a space telescope group but also had my hands on several projects which are now orbiting earth and even assembled several components which are now on Mars. After JPL I took a position as a test engineer at SpaceX, a few months later I made decision to leave aerospace and take a position with Singer Vehicle Design where I helped test and develop various systems which are still being used in every car they build. In 2015 I decided to leave and follow my personal passion for automobiles full time which led to my opening DV-Mechanics. I bring my lifelong background in aerospace and engineering to everything I work on at my shop and I have a high attention to detail. I hope you enjoy browsing my website and feel free to contact me with any inquiries.
